Why Lucky Franc’s Beard Comb is the Gold Standard

Why Lucky Franc’s Beard Comb is the Gold Standard

If you know anything about me, you know I don’t do anything half-assed.  So my decision to grow a beard isn’t something I decided on a whim.  Over the last few months, I’ve meticulously researched everything there is to know about growing out your facial hair.  From beard oil to sebaceous glands to growth stages, I’ve become somewhat of a beard growth expert (self-proclaimed, that is). 

One of the most interesting things I’ve learned about beard growth is the need for varying tools throughout the different stages.  In the first few months, growth is pretty minimal.  Though, growth can vary based on the guy.  Your beard hair can lie dormant for weeks and then sprout up a few millimeters in a single day.  But during those minimal times, you need a beard brush.  Beard brushes help you control the direction of growth, stimulate new growth, and even help cover up patchy areas.

But at some point, your needs will shift to a beard comb.  You’ll need a reliable tool that will help you style and untangle your beard hair.  Lucky Franc’s has all your beard combing needs covered.

The brand’s Pocket Sized Handmade Horn Beard Comb is considered the “gold standard” compared to other combs on the market.  For starters, plastic combs are cheaply made and cause breakage.  Metal combs often have jagged teeth which also lead to breakage.  Wooden combs are a pain to clean and start to disintegrate after repeated uses.  And rubber combs are harder to find.

Horn is a material designed to last a lifetime.  It’s high-quality and prevents static friction while you’re combing.  This means no more ruffled beards or flyaway hair.  Horn beard combs are perfect for working in beard oils, balms, or other moisture-enhancing grooming products.

Each comb sports an ergonomically-shaped handle for ultimate comfort.  At just 3 inches in length, it’s the perfect size to slide into a Dopp kit while you’re traveling. And each comb is hand cut, shaped, and polished by skilled craftsmen.  

Better yet, your comb is always guaranteed to be a one-of-a-kind purchase.  Horn is a natural material with color variations so no two combs are alike.  Not only are you ahead of the pack by stepping up your beard care routine, but you’ve also picked up a comb that’s unlike anyone else’s.  They’re shipped in a metal tin that’s reusable, recyclable, and easy to gift wrap.

For those guys out there who think a beard comb is just another frivolous product designed to take your money, think again.  The first time your beard hair gets knotted, I’m sure you’ll see the value in having a beard comb handy.  Plus, avoiding all those pesky tangles is a great way to ensure your beard keeps growing in healthy.

And at $12.99, you’re receiving a high-quality product that won’t set you back too far.  Instead of winging it and waiting till there’s a problem, get one of these guys so you can keep your beard looking great at all times.
